Notts County V Sheff Utd - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.Magpies mull over Newton inclusionNew signing Sean Newton is pushing for a place in the Notts County starting line up against Sheffield United at Meadow Lane.Newton moved to the Magpies from Vanarama Conference club Lincoln last week but the likelihood is that he will start on the bench with Blair Adams expected to keep his place at full-back and Will Hayhurst ahead of him on the wing.That is the only real selection dilemma for Notts boss Shaun Derry, who will be without long-term injury victim Jimmy Spencer (knee).Since the Magpies' last game against Leyton Orient on February 10, on-loan players Kwame Thomas and Alefe Santos have both returned to parent club Derby.Sheffield United striker Jose Baxter is doubtful after he was forced off with a dead leg in the first half of Saturday's win at Bristol City.Jamie Holt replaced Baxter and could be in contention for his first start for the club if the latter fails to make it.Manager Nigel Clough has no other new injury or suspension problems as the Blades chase a third straight league win, but midfielder Stefan Scougall (knee) and striker Michael Higdon (hamstring) remain doubtful.Goalkeeper Mark Howard is still struggling with the back problem that has ruled him out of the last two matches and midfielder James Wallace remains sidelined due to his latest knock sustained last month during a development game
